All Halloween all weekend

A sinister performance, pumpkin carving contest, food drive, pet microchip event and multiple trick-or-treats are on the docket.

A sinister performance, pumpkin carving contest, food drive, pet microchip event and multiple trick-or-treats are on the docket this weekend for Halloween.

Greg Meyer, the executive director of the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, said Wednesday that the Halloween food drive drop-off is an opportunity to both gather with community members and help those in need.

“We just wanted to connect with the community,” Meyer said. “We thought that (it) would be a good kickoff to their trick-or-treating.”

Community members are encouraged to head to the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank for a hotdog barbecue on Sunday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Bringing a donation for the food bank is encouraged but not required.

Teri Burdick, a director and producer with the Kenai Performers, said Wednesday that the cast is preparing for a second weekend of its sold-out “Wine, Cheese and Murder” show on Friday and Saturday. Last weekend’s production saw a full house, she said.

Additional Halloween activities this weekend include:

A pumpkin-decorating and swimming activity on Thursday from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., from kids ages 4 to 11 at the Nikiski Pool

A trunk-or-treat at the Kenai Senior Center at 4 p.m. on Friday

A drive-thru pet microchip and nail clipping event by the Kenai Peninsula Animal Lovers Rescue from noon to 2 p.m. at the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex on Saturday. Microchips are $20 each and nail clippings are $10.
